Gov Uzodinma Makes Case For Additional South East State

Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State has called for the creation of an additional state in the South-East.

Uzodinma made the call while delivering an address at the South-East Zonal public hearing of the House of Representatives on the review of the Nigerian Constitution.

”Ndiigbo will begin to see equity in action when an amended constitution births a sixth state in the southeast.

“The Igbo people seek a constitutional guarantee of their inalienable rights as citizens. A sixth state will go a long way in assuaging the acclaimed marginalisation,” he said.

The governor reiterated that the Igbo people believe in ‘One Nigeria’.

“I call on all Nigerians to take advantage of the opportunity presented by the public hearing to present what they think is necessary for our constitution to be called the peoples’ constitution,” he said.
